Burger King To DNA Test Its Beef After Food Processor Used Horse Meat
MIAMI, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Burger King will reportedly test its meat to make sure it is 100 percent beef after horse DNA was found in beef products from one of its food processors.
Diego Beamonte, Burger King’s vice president of global quality, told Bloomberg Businessweek that “details for DNA testing have not been worked out, and no timeline has been set for implementing the new procedures.”
Burger King addressed this topic after it was disclosed that Silvercrest Foods sold beef products containing horse meat to other retailers.
According to the company’s statement to PR Newsire, Burger King says it will test specifically for equine DNA.
Burger King told Businessweek that it dropped dealings with Silvercrest after learning that meat supplied by the distribution company contained horse meat. Burger King went on to say that product from Silvercrest was never sold in their stores.
“We will dedicate ourselves to determining what lessons can be learned and what additional measures, including DNA testing and enhanced traceability controls, can be taken to ensure that we continue to provide you with the quality products you expect from us,” Burger King stated in a press release to Newswire.
Burger King says they are committed to using suppliers that only produce 100 percent beef products.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.
Go Canucks Go.

Not news until human meat is used.
Even then, I'd be torn between "news" and "delicious".
